"Murder and violent crime take many forms. Who are the perpetrators? What do they have in common and how are they different? The Encyclopedia of Murder and Violent Crime presents the latest research, insightful commentary, and "true crime" case studies to help in the understanding and deterrence of one of society's gravest problems. Although there is no easy answer to the question of why people kill or commit violent crimes, this important new reference provides a wealth of information to create a background for cogent analysis." "The Encyclopedia contains over 200 entries covering long-documented classifications such as Serial Killers and Organized Crime to cutting edge topics of Cyber-Stalking, Kids Who Kill, and Terrorism. Leading educators, psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, and criminal justice professionals share their experience and insights on everything from Aggression and Antisocial Personality Disorder to the infamous Zodiac Murders."--Jacket.
